Blood Work

Has anyone had blood drawn from an artery? I had it done tonight at the ER and my arm is still throbbing with pain. The nurses did say it would hurt, but I'm wondering how long the pain lasts?

  • I am thinking a couple of days. Try putting some ice on the spot where the blood was drawn.
